You’re high-achieving and hard-working, and you do it all to have a great life that makes you happy and proud of yourself.
Yet, when you’re feeling stressed out, anxious, and having constant negative thoughts, you can get unmotivated, cynical, and frustrated. And it often feels like you have to choose between success and your happiness. When this happens you can start to feel even more hopeless, anxious, and even depressed.
But the truth is that having both success and happiness is really hard. And it’s normal to struggle in nurturing both, especially when others make it even harder. Even though you feel stressed and not yourself these days, it doesn’t have to continue. Instead, you can design and cultivate the type of success and fulfilment you really want for yourself.
Together, we can get you there.
If this is your first time in therapy, here’s what to generally expect:
Therapy is an in-depth focus on resolving the internal stress, anxiety, overwhelm, and communication difficulties that are preventing you from having the life and the relationships you want. Webpsych offers individual therapy to help you understand your emotions, thoughts, beliefs, and communication style, so that you make immediate changes where you need them and boost your natural strengths where they already are. Couples therapy is available to help you and your partner improve the connection, communication, and love in your relationship. Whether you have an urgent issue or an ongoing pattern, WebPsych will teach you the tools to bring back your happiness and ease in life.
Latino professionals like us end up with a scarcity of useful information and an embarrassing amount of one-size-fits-all mainstream counsel. My own life experience, my experience working with countless Latinos over the years, and my research are the reasons that WebPsych specializes in culturally competent information and support.
Time is your most precious resource. So, deciding on whether you would benefit more from sessions in person or virtually is an important step:
Meeting in person can certainly feel more intimate and personal. Sitting face-to-face, we can look each other in the eyes, and feel a human connection. Some people are much more comfortable meeting in person. And often, a client may initially come to my office, and then switch to working with me online, with some sessions still in person. * While there are many benefits to meeting in person, it is increasingly less convenient and less time-efficient for my clients. It can be difficult to get away from the office or house, drive through traffic, find parking, wait for the session to start, and after the session, go back to your home or work. The further you work and live from my office, the more time it can take from your day. And, instead of integrating the session into your mind, memory, and plans after you leave, you’re negotiating through traffic. For many people, it’s simply not the best use of their time and energy. Thus, I currently see a limited number of clients in my office.
Virtual (aka, online) therapy and coaching can take much of the hustle and bustle out of your sessions. At your session time, from the convenience of your home, office, or even while traveling, you simply go online to our secure video platform, via your computer or phone, and we’ll begin our session. When we’re done, you’re ready to take notes or start implementing what we’ve discussed. For many people, the time saved, the flexibility and convenience, and the ease and flow of virtual therapy and coaching is the main selling point. It can give you the quiet space to consider what you want to discuss before the session, and then allow you to stay in the mental space after to integrate the discussion into your life. That space after sessions helps enormously in retaining what you’ve learned, and can multiply the speed of your progress. It’s one reason why numerous studies show online therapy and online coaching to be even more effective than in-person.
Please note: Serious mental health disorders and mental illness are not appropriate for online online therapy. Those are only appropriate for in-person therapy.
There’s one thing I know for sure: When you’re willing and ready to clarify both your goals and any obstacles to them, and have a strong partner to guide you forward, you can create the fulfillment and success you’ve dreamed of for yourself and your family.

Like many of my clients, I came from the working class. I grew up in a Mexican-American family on the eastside of Los Angeles. I was the only son of a factory worker and a homemaker who did odd jobs like housecleaning to make ends meet. Like so many of us from blue collar families striving toward white collar dreams, my journey toward the upper middle-class life that my parents hoped for was a hard-fought process.
That fight included a lot of bad decisions as a teen, depression and feelings of failure as a young adult, and hitting rock bottom at the age of 21. Fortunately, I rebounded from that low point with an unrelenting ambition and effort towards achieving higher education, professional achievements, and a better life—which resulted in access to a seat at the upper-class table.
I worked hard enough to graduate from USC’s Business Entrepreneur program without a high school diploma, and by the age of 30, I co-owned a successful, nationwide software distribution company in the Silicon Valley. We developed a unique business model that disrupted the industry’s status quo. But soon after the money and success began to flow, I was confronted with the emptiness I was previously too busy to feel. My emptiness was the result of achieving financial success without deeper purpose. I wasn’t making the world a better place, and I achieved it at the expense of watching sunsets and laughing with close friends. After all I’d been through, and having come from a highly altruistic, humanitarian family, I felt ready to fulfill my purpose of guiding others like me in their own reinvented lives and stories of success. With that in mind, I left my company and entered the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant University, where I received a Masters in Clinical Psychology and a Doctorate (Psy.D.), at both receiving a summa cum laude distinction. As a psychologist, my style is warm, direct, and honest, advocating for your success and the achievement of your personal and professional goals. My work is based on Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, Psychodynamic Therapy, mindfulness, and Differentiation-Based Couples Therapy. After getting through that rock-bottom period, everything in my life changed. I became a theatre actor, an advanced world scuba diver, a Krav Maga trainee, an award-winning photographer, and have been an avid salsa dancer in the Los Angeles salsa scene for many years (which is my favorite way to consistently celebrate my Latino culture). I have traveled extensively in over 50 countries – trekking through the Himalayas, along the Ganges, and through the Amazon. I bring my experiences and the certainty they give me about creating a great life to every client and every goal we work on together.
“Henry is one of those fortunate souls that understand the difference between circumstances and character. To the therapeutic and coaching processes, he brings more than education and clinical skills; he brings his remarkable life experience into helping others understand how to become their greatest selves. His intelligence, perseverance and love for others is used to be of service, to make a difference, to help others heal, to assist in the journey of finding richly rewarding lives. He is outgoing, grounded, has healthy pride in his Latin culture and has the greatest love for family and good living. Significantly, he demonstrates the kind of humility that can come out of hitting rock bottom.”
